PoetryBridge Association of West Seattle is a co-sponsor of a Poetry Reading and Writing Workshop Plus Open Mic on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 2-5 PM at Alaska House in West Seattle, 4545 42nd Avenue SW, Seattle, WA 98116.
This is a public event, open and free to all. All Alaska House residents, their families, friends and neighbors are invited
The event will be hosted by Koon Woon, an international poet and winner of the American Book Award and a valued member of the PoetryBridge community. As if poetry is not enough, Koon is cooking up a batch of our famous Northwest clam chowder which will be served along with ‘finger food’ and beverages.
Koon is asking you to bring poems you want to read during open mic and written work to be critiqued during the workshop.
The event is supported in part by Poets & Writers which according to their website was “founded in 1970 and is the nation’s largest nonprofit organization serving creative writers.”
Their mission is “to foster the professional development of poets and writers, to promote communication throughout the literary community, and to help create an environment in which literature can be appreciated by the widest possible public.”
“Each year, tens of thousands of poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers benefit from P&W’s programs, which include its eponymous magazine; a dynamic, information-rich website; financial support for readings and other literary events; and sponsorship of several notable writing prizes and awards.”
A poster is attached. Feel free to distribute on your social media of choice.
